Overview


Social bookmarking is the habit or practice of saving bookmarks to a web site and “tagging” them with keywords. Social bookmarking sites are a popular way to store, classify, share and search links.

Uses of Social Bookmarking in Education


  • Network with other educators around the globe who share your interests.
  • Create social bookmark accounts for your school's academic departments. Teachers within the department all contribute to the growing database of web resources.
  • Contact other people for professional networking, based on their social bookmarks.
  • Allow yourself and your students to share bookmarks on research topics.
  • Subscribe to someone's bookmarks via RSS and receive updates whenever they add new websites.
  • Collaborate on projects with other schools, sharing bookmarks between all participating communities.

What Social Bookmarking Does for Students


When teachers have a collection of course sites as part of a social bookmark group:
  • Gives students a live link to select instead of fumbling through typing a long URL into the address bar.
  • Lets students choose from a variety of acceptable links, making for productive research that still allows for variability.
